S3 is still the best. I've been visiting gsmarena everyday and still see it is on top daily interest. iPhone go deep down. Swear on earth, this phone is really great. It's perfect on my palm. It run great with JB 4.1.1, 4.1.2 (multi-window as in Note II)...
My spec: Omega v33.xx, Siyah kernel v1.7, the phone flies.
Anchor, 22 Nov 2012My N8 & IPhone 4S beats this ugly phone in camera. IPhone 4S does wonders over this phone.... moreI've had mine for 5 months and have zero regrets, and if there was a better phone out there I'd buy it because I just want the very best Phone/OS combo and have no loyalties. And the S-Voice and Camera "Problems" are all software related and each OS update it gets better.
ifrit723, 23 Nov 2012Would this phone(16GB) be good if i'm going to keep it for 2-3 years? (No changing)Only problem is you can't move Apps to external SD like almost every other Android phone so maybe in 2 years you using more Apps than you expected, so if that happens the only way is to Root and install App called Directory Bind to move files to external memory. But apart from that it's gonna be all the phone most people will ever need for a few more years.

csile591, 22 Nov 2012i have the SIII for two weeks. I find it a good telephone but too expensive for what you recei... moreToday my phone fell on an industrial greeting step. (Holding construction plans and trying to take a picture for a report)
Not a scratch and everything still work, because of a gel case that cost not more than $5.00US
so you buy this phone and too cheap to buy a case?
for s3 india users baseband version i9300ddlh1 ,while trying to update through OTA it showed message that update will be available in order of user trying to request it,try again later,just updated it through kies took almost 1 hour
i have the SIII for two weeks. I find it a good telephone but too expensive for what you receive. First the screen is fragile, it cracked after it fell from my pocket. SEcond, voice commands are really really really bad. i had a samsung focus and voice commands on the win phone is very impresive, because its easy to use, dont need data plan to function, ask for confirmation when ask for a task and very very fast. SIII voice commands are slow, not accurate, need wifi or 3g data plan to function. doesnt ask for confirmation. If you are going to pay more than 500 dollars for something i should be better than iphone, or windows phone. very very dissapointed. im waiting to sell this phone.

Aizaz Ali, 22 Nov 2012Thankyou again anthony for prompt replying me
Yes i have seen lot of applications and i mad... moreincase you didn't notice the running apps shown in "Applications Manager" are broken up into 2 vies.
show cached processes & show services in use.
you have to tap those names to switch between the 2.
hope i didn't send this too late.
Anchor, 22 Nov 2012My N8 & IPhone 4S beats this ugly phone in camera. IPhone 4S does wonders over this phone.... morec'mon . the iphone is so overrated. the screen is to small , you have to buy apps that are free on most or all androids.and you have to buy songs from the i-store that you can get free from gtunes and other free music apps on androids.and seems to be to me is more complicated on some of the features and apps. all your really paying for is the name. its sad that people are blind to these things. thx

i take back what i said about the games...
with know games running check the applications manager to see if any of your games are up to no good in the background. never know what a program could be designed to do when it thinks the average Joe don't know where to look.
Aizaz Ali, 22 Nov 2012i updated All my applications from play store..
More than 40 to 50 ...
i am feelings there i... moreForget the games once they are not running it should not use the battery
Look at the settings in your messaging, email, and social apps,
Tay may be using your cellular radio more than you like when your phone is idle or one of them could be stopping the phone from going idel. Checking the individual settings of programs that access your cellular radio, wifi, & GPS are important because the default settings for each app may not always be best for battery life. (each app should have there own setting that you can find by pressing the menu key.)
Btw. Long pressing home key to see what is running or to close apps is a limited view of what is running in the background.
If you really want to see all that is running or trying shot down background activity of any app. You have to go to…. Settings>Applications manager>running.
Closing apps like facebook, whatsapp, viber tunein radio, email. And many, many more by long holding the home key is a joke. You will see it is still running at the location mentioned above.
Anthony, 22 Nov 2012What changed in the last week?
What installed, upgrade or settings edited? i updated All my applications from play store..
More than 40 to 50 ...
i am feelings there is some problem in any application which has updated any effecting on my battery now..

Far better than any iPhone released to date. Superior processor, camera optics give a better picture, the panoramic photos are better too, far better navigation than the shambles that is iOS6. Better screen, better size. More comfortable design. And the latest android system is just brilliant. *****
